'Of Mice And Men'
Loneliness affects many of the characters in the story Mice and Men. Steinbeck seems to show that it is natural and inevitable result of the kind of life they were forced to lead. Do you agree?
In 'Of Mice and Men' one of the first thing you see which leads you to loneliness is that we never find out the name of Curleys wife. This shows how she was thought of at the ranch. I think she is regarded of more as a possession than a person. She always dressed up in pretty clothing, which often attracted the workers, and she was pretty, with full red lips and wide eyes, heavily made up.
Curley's wife acts as 'jailbait' as she dresses up to attract the workers and then when Curley finds out, he would sack the workers. This is a reason George gets Lennie to stay away from Curley's wife.
'Don't even take at look at that bitch! I don't care what she says and what she does, I never seen a piece of jailbait worse than her. You leave her be!'
